As a global leader in providing easy-to-use, scalable telehealth solutions, RingMD is excited to announce the launch of RingMD University, its first telehealth product specifically designed to meet the unique needs of the collegiate healthcare market.
RingMD University is a HIPAA-compliant, cloud-based telehealth platform, specifically designed for student health centers. Whether a stand-alone solution or integrated with existing clinical software, RingMD University allows college medical professionals to offer secure and convenient video consultations to the busy students they serve.
RingMD University can be implemented in a student health center setting to provide additional online services to student/patients, optimize medical professionals’ time, improve workforce management, and improve quality of care. It is easy-to-use, can be accessed by any web-enabled device - such as computers, tablets, and hand-held smart phones (via Android and iOS) - and requires no additional installation of software.
Expand Access to Care
Video visits are more efficient than in-person ones. This means that each provider can see more patients during the same period of time.
Accommodating a Busy Life
Modern telemedicine technology can be used virtually anywhere, at any time. This gives practices the ability to accommodate the life of a busy student - to offer extended hours, weekend operations, or 24-hour service. What’s more, RingMD can help in staffing none, some or all of the telehealth offerings with negligible upfront costs.
Improved Patient Health Outcomes
Patients are more likely to comply with recommendations for follow-up appointments if those recommendations can be conducted via video. Video visits are also an effective way to increase patient engagement in lifestyle coaching, medication monitoring, and the management of chronic conditions.
College-age students are seeking mental health assistance at a higher rate than ever before. Healthcare providers are discovering that a telehealth platform is an effective forum for connecting with college students dealing with stress and other mental health issues.
Outsourcing Medical Services
Fills gaps for schools with and without a student health center. Provide general or specialized care, such as dermatology, OB/GYN, psychiatry or optometry, that might otherwise be too expensive to offer.
RingMD partners with student health centers to most effectively meet their goals. The easy-to-use RingMD platform and associated smart phone app can be institutionally-branded to look and feel like an integrated piece of health center technology. Telemedicine services can be staffed by existing university medical personnel or by our trusted network of medical professionals.
Care: 24/7/365. Cost: starting as low a $1 per student. Implementation time: less than a week.
